Water Temperature: 41
Water Clarity: 1 foot
This report is for the past weekend. I fished the Alabama Bass Trail this weekend and it was by far the toughest tournament I have ever fished. I have found areas where the bite was turning on in the afternoon around 3PM with the current cold water temps. During practice we caught some really good Jerkbait fish around main lake transition areas such as islands and bluff walls. The last day of practice the bite drastically slowed down for us when they shut off the current. We went looking for back up fish up north. I found a great area catching a couple fish off of it. One being this six pounder who choked my Xcalibur! It is a main lake flat with scattered dead grass mixed with bright green millfoil. However on tournament day I couldn't execute and didn't catch any fish. Over 80 boats zeroed in this tournament, and by far the toughest bite I have had in a long time!
I have trips all week and will be posting pictures. With the ice finally melting giving access to the creeks, and the warmer temperatures the bite will begin to pick back up. The Classic will be hitting the nail on the head with their timing as always. I think it is going to be a Classic to remember.
I have days available to fish with you!
